Alumnus receives National Institutes of Health award of merit

Neeraj Arora

Decorative initial cap Neeraj K. Arora (MS ’98, PhD ’00) received a National Institutes of Health Award of Merit from National Cancer Institute Director Harold Varmus on Nov. 4. The award recognizes Arora’s work in patient-centered cancer care as a research scientist and program director at the National Cancer Institute Applied Research Program.

Arora is leading efforts to build a research program to assess, monitor and improve cancer patient care. For more than 12 years, Arora’s research has integrated health communication, outcomes research, and cancer survivorship. His expertise includes assessing patient-reported outcomes, such as patient experiences and satisfaction, information needs and health-related quality of life, as well as studying the impact of patient-clinician communication.

Arora also is a long-term cancer survivor. In 1994, while still a student at UW-Madison, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “Now, influenced by my training at UW and my personal cancer experience, I head a program of research on patient-centered care with the aim of improving quality of cancer care from the patient’s perspective,” Arora says.
